    Pros

    Imagination is a nice environmenment to work in with flexible work hours. There are good engineers and you are in the heart of technology.

    Cons

    Low salaries, very badly organised (it is a mess) probably because they have enjoyed a sudden growth. You either are lucky and fit or not. the flexible working hours turn out to be long hours...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your engineers is the company's value. Start treating them like this.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    Market leading technologies in several different fields
    Patient organisation - this is not a place where people get fired
    Great experience builder for young or inexperienced
    Engineering heaven - you'll be surrounded by amazing brain power in various fields

    Cons

    Salaries completely out of tune with market - leaving IMG will make your salary jump substantially
    Senior management is here to stay - so there is a strong glass ceiling to promotions
    Literally everybody is an engineer - makes for very one-sided thinking
    This is Hossein Yassaie's company - every single decision is made by him
    Management often treats employees as dummies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't underestimate employees - people are often a lot smarter than you think, and can easily see through management litany and smoke screens. You would be amazed what people can produce and contribute, if you only put a little faith in their ability. Salary levels desperately need adjustment.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    Admittedly, IMG is a name that will stand out on your CV.
    Working with the most advanced hardware, the best product in our target market.
    A relaxed atmosphere in most teams.

    Cons

    Salary is quite uncompetitive.
    Bureaucracy and process
    Middle management can be clueless
    Probably too many people working on the software

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries should be reviewed more regularly.

    I worked at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    Some interesting software/chip design projects; friendly and professional people; slightly cheap living

    Cons

    Not competitive salary; no recognition mechanism in place
    Salary should reflect market rates and be increased. More responsibilities should be shared with other Engineers.
    Share option is not worth, so should not be a selling point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review salary and compare against market rate;
